Experience Bedouin Culture in Jordan

With the semi-nomadic tribes making up more than 30% of the country’s population, Bedouin culture forms an important part of Jordan’s heritage and large numbers reside in tourist hotspots like the Wadi Rum desert and the Petra desert. There’s no better way to discover Jordan’s vast desert plains than through the eyes of the locals and many tours opt to use Bedouin guides and drivers, and include a camel ride through the dunes or a visit to a Bedouin camp, where travelers can sip mint tea and learn about unique local customs. 

The ultimate way to experience Bedouin culture in Jordan is to spend a night in a traditional Bedouin tent, sleeping beneath the stars in the middle of the desert and waking early to watch the sunrise on a scenic hot air balloon ride over the cliffs and dunes. Bedouin hospitality is legendary, so you’ll be in good hands as you enjoy a typical Bedouin dinner around the campfire, then bed down in a comfortable beit sha'ar tent.
